Brooklyn’s future is only as bright as we let our present be, and our borough’s youth deserve support systems that will allow them to soar to great heights. Brooklyn Org partners with organizations that help address gaps in educational outcomes and school climate for students of color, introduce youth to new skills and passions, and empower them to become leaders in their communities. We believe in leveling the playing field for our young Brooklynites by giving them the tools they need to reach their goals from day one.
Brooklyn Org provides holistic support and resources to nonprofits across the borough, from funding to capacity building, and more.
BKO’s commitment to supporting our work has been instrumental to our success working with these young ladies and helping them restore their mental health and break the generations of trauma they’ve had to life with.

[We’re] meeting young immigrant women where they are in their journey, and helping them with their cases, defending their human rights, [and] helping set them up for success and happiness in this new country.
Founder & Executive Director, The Brave House
Brooklyn Org’s support gives us a really good foundation so we can scale up our efforts. We’ve received over 1,200 applications for about 250 spots over the last three years, so obviously the demand within New York City is very high.

What we do is help fellows see themselves as who they truly are, and help them understand that they deserve a seat at the table. We want to help the young people in our program to manifest their destinies and acquire the skills to get there.
